    Anonymous Employee in Greenlawn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BAE Systems USA in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email to interview in person a few days later. The interview was pretty easy. I spoke with four of their engineers, one manager and three engineers. They were all nice and pleasant. I was given a brief tour of the building. Then I spoke with each engineer individually. The whole interview took about 2 hours.

    Interview Questions
    • We mostly discussed things that were on my resume and my past experiences. Fairly standard interview questions. There was a technical portion, but there was no programming. They just asked topical questions like "What is polymorphism?" and "What's the difference between TCP/IP and UDP?"   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview Details

    The process started via email and then became a phone interview, and for me, then skipped to a 2-day final round interview. The problem was that I had plans for those two days and then were unwilling to move things around, and then unwilling to further pursue me as a candidate when I opted to keep my original plans.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview Details

    There was about a 20 minute phone interview screen and once i got passed that, they flew me to the location where there was about an hour interview with the manager and program manager. The questions were the basic intro questions (why do you want to work here, what do you like about this position, etc) behavioral ( How have you been innovative, describe a misunderstanding, etc) and then there was the technical section. I would say just know the V model really well.

    Interview Questions
    • Fortunately for me, neither of the interviewers knew that much about systems engineering so as long as it came out polished i was ok. The hardest question for me is always, "whats your weakness"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They tried to low ball me big time for what i thought i was worth but we negotiated. Even though i still didnt get what i wanted, it was about 10K more than they initially offered.

    FLDP Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    It was a pretty straightforward interview. Mostly behavioral questions, so if you search around the Internet, it should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. I would definitely recommend doing research about the company beforehand, as well as assessing your hard and soft skills and experiences on your resume so you'll be well-prepared to answer the majority of their questions. If there are any information sessions or networking events, attend them if you can. More often than not, the person who is interviewing you might be at those sessions. Don't be afraid to ask questions about the program and introduce yourself. They'll remember your face and they'll also know that you're genuinely interested in working for the company if you're willing to go out of your way to speak to them.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you worked in a team where you succeeded, and another time when it didn't succeed.   View Answer
